WATCH: Stephen Colbert Mocks Those with Wind Turbine Syndrome
Stephen Colbert took some time on his show the other day to discuss a strange syndrome affecting those who live near wind turbines. In fact, it’s so serious, it could halt the installation of wind turbines throughout the country… Just kidding. It’s actually a made up disease by those who don’t like living near wind turbines anymore. Colbert rips it apart and makes us laugh at the ridiculousness of it all.
Apparently, wind turbine syndrome is an ailment that you can catch by hearing about it. Because doctors have found no connection between wind turbines and WTS, it’s more thought of as psychological or as the syndrome people blame all their other health issues on. That includes nausea, headaches, stomach aches and herpes. Yes. That’s right. Herpes.
Colbert offers what one person with herpes might say to their romantic partner. “No baby, I didn’t cheat on you. It was the windmill. It used my toilet seat.”
Exactly. Watch the clip below and laugh.
